A wonderful flavoring and an aromatic herb.
The name "Spearmint” comes from the shape of its leaves. As a flavoring, it is popularly used for gums, toothpastes, mojitos and candy. Many people enjoy fresh spearmint in their lemonade. It is used in the kitchen as a flavoring for meat, rice and desserts. Spearmint is popular in herbal blends too. Like peppermint, spearmint is a great additive to teas, or it can be used alone.
Spearmint is high in antioxidants, is reportedly used to reduce congestion in those suffering from colds.
Spearmint is very valued for its essential oil, which is used in aromatherapy.
Even the dried herb has strong aromatic properties. Add it to your dream pillows, sacehets, soaps, and even your bath water as people have been doing for centuries.
Spearmint reportedly has calming properties and benefits the stomach. It reportedly stimulates digestion, reduces gas and is a common herbal remedy for nausea. Spearmint has been shown to have anti-fungal properties as well.
Dried spearmint leaves make a minty, refreshing, satisfying drink - hot or cold.
